Fantastic Experience! Our family of four (including kids 7 and 11) enjoyed a morning flight on our own balloon! I thought my wife an kids would be nervous but Petra and her team made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. Great communication in advance to understand where to be. They went above and beyond by taking several photos - from the balloon and from the ground crew - and sharing those - fantastic! On this family trip to the black hills, the entire trip was fantastic. This balloon ride was a highlight. If you have not experienced a balloon ride, it is unlike anything else and you must give it a try.


Awesome view. With friendly crew! 100 percent enjoyed our very first ballon ride! Loved the hot chocolate for the cold day. And exceeded my expectations.


The ride was amazing. The views were gorgeous. Petra was warm, welcoming, and made us feel very comfortable thought the whole process.


Thank you Petra and crew for the GREAT flight today over Angustora Lake. This was last years bday present from my hubby. You exceeded my expectations of what to expect on the ride, great views and photo opportunities!!!


Petra and crew did an amazing job! Our flight was spectacular! Smooth take off and landing. What a wonderful experience.


Absolutely amazing experience! Would highly recommend this to anyone!!! If I could give more than ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I would!!!


Petra and her team are true professionals and made our first balloon ride absolutely one of our best life adventures. Floating over the Black Hills was so beautiful and peaceful and Petra made our ride fun and interesting by willingly sharing her knowledge about ballooning and answering all of our questions on how things work with the equipment, atmosphere, the terrain, and her interesting career. Setup was so meticulous and well organized which made us feel very safe and secure as we embarked on our wonderful hour-long ride. Our landing was also perfect as we slowly drifted in and gently landed on the airfield. Pack-up was fun and interesting to watch and help with. We also thoroughly enjoyed our after-ride reception and snacks which gave us a chance to get to tell Petra and her crew what a fantastic experience they gave us. We would highly recommend riding with Petra and Western Horizons to any and all - you will love it!!


This was an incredible experience! Petra was so calm and confident and we felt safe and well taken care of the entire time. The views were stunning and although I grew up in the Black Hills, I saw the area in a new and amazing way! Truly an incredible experience!


What an incredible time we had flying with Petra, her crew, and Glorious Drifter! They are a kind, accommodating, and knowledgeable team who took such good care of us. The sun came up as we took off, lighting up the most beautiful of landscapes. The ride was was serene! We truly loved that this was a private and personal experience for just our family of five. Other hot air balloon companies in the area offer more of a shared experience. We will always remember our very first hot air balloon ride…it certainly won’t be our last!
